In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, and baking powder.
Cut in the butter until mixture is crumbly.
Stir in currants.
Add beaten eggs and beat until mixture forms a stiff dough.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to one-quarter inch thick.
With a floured cookie cutter, cut dough into 3-inch rounds.
Set cakes on a lightly greased hot griddle.
When bottoms are golden brown, turn and cook other side.
When second side is done, turn griddle off.
Leave cakes on griddle for a few moments to dry them slightly.
While still warm, sprinkle cakes with sugar.
